If you really want to go by population. Dallas area proper is still smaller with a population of 1,281,047, as of 2014 compared to San Antonio's population of 1,409,019 in 2014.

You are just throwing in metro numbers to make Dallas look bigger.
Really?

The OP lived in Flower Mound and Frisco NOT Dallas so why wouldn't I bring up metro area numbers? Unlike San Antonio MOST people in DFW live outside of Dallas.

FYI when you are looking for housing and amenities the metro area numbers are a better gauge.

Then mention that 1) you are referring to population numbers and not only that....2)add that you are using metro numbers in order to avoid confusion to not only me but the OP as well.

I can't read your mind. My "thinking cap" doesn't read minds.

There's a house right across the street from me you could snatch up in a very nice gated community in stone oak for that figure. $500 even.
4 BR, 3 bath, 3 car garage on .3 acre. 3800 sq ft. Lots of interior stone work. Mediterranean style home.

Thanks to everyone for the helpful responses. I could afford to spend 725-750000 but I felt personally that I'd be better off in bulverde boerne or new braunfels if I was going to have to spend that. The dfw suburbs are very different as I now know and what made me decide to chose to be in San Antonio and not surrounding areas was to be near restaurants and things to do. Where as those towns aren't very developed which I'm also partially used to as I lived that life in the suburbs for quite a while. All I'm asking for is a nice safe community with an hoa to kinda keep people slightly responsible. With my search I do think vintage oaks in new braunfels is going to be my pace. Anyone know anything about that subdivision?

For that money I'm not sure why you aren't looking at the park cities equivalent, of Alamo heights, Terrell Hills and Olmos park.

Are the houses less than five years old?

Just like the park cities, yes there are a fewer new homes available mostly in Terrell Hills, as Alamo heights is more strict on tear downs to preserve the ascetic of the town and prevent gawd-awful Tex-Mediterranean from being built there.

Jordyntex, I sent you a message. If you can spend the 750, you can get into the Dominion with that kinda money. My bud has several listings there. The Dominion is about as good as it gets in SA.

Careful about those hill country areas. They have grandiose plans in New Braunfels to add 10,000 homes in the next few years. Gonna be chaos in 15-20 years. I don't know how long you were looking to stay...
